Convicted rapist and newly recognized dad.
Raped and impregnated at 12, she must now permit her rapist to visit her child. If you thought this was a story out of Pakistan or some other Islamic theocracy you would be forgiven your error. Surely this cannot happen in America — in 2017? Apparently, it can.
As reported in the Detroit News:
A Sanilac County Circuit judge has granted parenting time and joint legal custody of an 8-year-old boy to a convicted sex offender[Christoper Mirasolo, 27] who allegedly raped the child’s mother nine years ago.
There is no ‘allegedly’. A DNA test established that Mirasolo is the father of the now 9-year-old child. The mother is 21. The math, if you add in a nine-month pregnancy, confirms her age at conception as 12. Regardless of force, it was rape.
It gets worse:
[Judge Gregory S.] Ross disclosed the rape victim’s address to Mirasolo and ordered Mirasolo’s name to be added to the child’s birth certificate — all without the victim’s consent or a hearing, according to Kiessling[the victim’s lawyer].
And let’s not think for one moment that the child was a product of an inappropriate but close relationship. The assault on the child’s mother took place over two days in which she was kept a captive. The crime was so severe the sentence would have been potentially life — and no less than 25 years. But in a deal, Mirasolo pled guilty to attempted third-degree criminal sexual conduct. And received a year.
And then he did it again.
In March 2010, Mirasolo committed a sex assault on a victim between the ages of 13 and 15 years old. He served only four years for that second offense
It gets even worse. The matter arose as the state was auditing its food stamp program. I’ll let the victim explain.
“They (officials) never explained anything to me. I was receiving about $260 a month in food stamps for me and my son and health insurance for him. I guess they were trying to see how to get some of the money back.”
While this is the first instance of this in the US, evangelicals have been lobbying for parental rights for rapists for a while. Wait till they hear you can save money too. The ‘Christianity’ will be overwhelming.
